An excellent overview of EWF...
All that was missing was sublime "In the Stone." RIP Maurice White -- the pride of South Memphis, TN...

As always, Ron outdoes himself again! As a longtime listener of CFTP, he really pulled out all the stops on this one...I think Maurice White would be proud...There is so much material out there, and so many great EW&F songs, he literally could do two or three shows worth of great stuff, but as a succinct combination of greatness, this fits the bill very nicely, even considering that he almost had no time to properly prepare...Yeah, having the Casey Kasem intros would have been fun, but this show is right up there with his best!
